AIRCampus is a project by the Italian National Cancer Association (AIRC) Foundation's project dedicated to university students to raise awareness of cancer.

For the 2023-2024 academic year, UniTS has organised lectures on topics related to the Foundation's work which are also of interest to students from various degree courses.

Join us for the second semester. Each lecture lasts about 2 hours, during which both an Italian National Cancer Association (AIRC) expert such as a researcher, manager, nonprofit expert, or testimonialand a UniTS lecturer will speak.

This is a unique opportunity for students to explore topics in line with their study plans, and to listen to the testimonies of professionals with concrete examples and a multidisciplinary approach to the subject.
